    The Best Medicine

    Laughter is truly the best medicine. Along with music, laughter helps me deal with my stress. It relaxes me and helps me focus. I can’t imagine not having these two things in my life, especially when I’m dealing with problems.

    Laughing Until I'm Crying

    Because I allow stress to build up over long periods of time without displaying outward signs of distress, when I laugh I tend to laugh until I'm crying....and then I do this weird laughing/crying combination because all that stress is finally being let loose. Unfortunately, once...
